What a find, a true hidden gem with spectacular views all around. The house is a credit to the owners, a real home from home feel, with many little special touches, that made our stay extra special. The house has recently been fully refurbished to a very high standard, with many period features to complement the property. What an amazing view direct from the bath tub and the kitchen layout has absolutely every thing you could ask for. The gardens offer uninterrupted spectacular views of the surrounding hills and countryside, all of which constantly change through out the day. At the bottom of the garden is a little train station and hourly the local miniature steam train could be heard and seen. The local area has many beautiful walks through some stunning countryside, with many friendly pubs offering fantastic food and many real ales. The river Esk offers excellent fishing and on the banks is Eskdale Golf Club which is definitely worth a visit. What more can we add..we thoroughly... more
